Geez, I'm worried enough about the vicious blackflies as it is. Now I'm TERRIFIED!!!

Did you use any kind of bug spray or repellent? I'm looking at one of those portable ThermaCell gadgets which a friend swears work for blackflies.

I'll be doing the trip starting Aug 1st and HAD planned on doing as much camping as possible.

That's when I woke up. One eye is shut (a bit difficult to ride) and the lip is swollen.



An hour or so later. At least I can have a 3D perception of the road.



And don't forget the longest distance between fuel is 420km (260 miles). Have fun doing the remaining 600km of dirt roads. Those are being paved at a high pace these days. ;-)
